South Dakota is the only place to be for snow (and storm) lovers. Of all the possible topics that can be written about this U.S. State, the snow (and everything related to it) has captivated me more than anything. The past posts are a clear proof:

- Snowy Christmas in Brookings
- Scenes after the snow
- Brookings is cool! Take it literally
- Only a Filipino loves a snow storm
- Let the sunshine in
- Brookings, South Dakota in severe winter storm

Since yesterday afternoon, South Dakota has been stricken by a snow storm. It is the first snow storm of the season in SD and for the United States.

The reports said that some areas could be without power for days. My gully! No heating system inside the house could freeze me in hours.
A long stretch of Interstate 90 was closed. Some motorists have been stranded for more than 24 hours and search teams can't get to them because of zero visibility.

The storm has dropped 45.7 inches of snow near Deadwood, in the northern Black Hills. Reports of 10 inches to 2 feet of snow were received from many West River counties.

In some towns, residents reported drifts were blocking their doorways, and in the southwestern corner of the state, 20-foot snowdrifts were reported on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
Alright, time for me to shovel the snow.
